MADE IN THE U.S.A. by Billie Letts, (c) 2008. Let me assure you this is a VERY good book! This is a coming of age family drama book, my favorite kind I must say! This is the story of 15 year old Lutie and her 11 year old brother Fate McFee. They are living in Spearfish, South Dakota. Their mother has died and their father, an alcoholic was left them with his live in girlfriend, 300 pound Floy, (short of Florence). The only problem is Floy just dropped dead at the local Walmart and in order to avoid being hauled off by Child Services they steal Floy’s old car and take of for Los Vegas to look for their father. Once there they end up living on the streets in their car. They are having quite an adventure and not all of it good. Sometimes it’s heartbreaking to read, but I highly recommend that you do! I’ll let YOU read the ending yourself. It’s bad manners to give away the ending. I will make sure I read more Billie Lett’s books.
